Edit Section Heading:Climate
Edit Image URL: /SiteCollectionImages/ci_30785027.jpg
Edit Image Alt Text: Alt Text
Edit Text: Our food system, our economies, our cities and our communities — they’re all adapted to the climate we currently live in. But what if the climate changes too fast for us to keep up? The fate of the one and only planet we’ve ever called home is uncertain. It is in everyone's interest to come together to address the challenges we face.

Edit Text: Sometimes, to make conservation happen, you’ve got to get your boots muddy. Charles Darwin. Mary and Louis Leakey. Jane Goodall. Oftentimes, the most remarkable science is done by people with their feet in the proverbial mud.

Edit Text: Soils. Water. Healthy oceans. Without these building blocks of nature, people would starve. Today, 842 million people do not have enough to eat. And the pressures on our food system are only growing. We must figure out how to feed the world — without destroying it.

Edit Text: Robert Frost had it right — the woods are lovely, dark and deep. They’re our respite. Our places of peace. Our natural air filters. Our water factories. Our medicine cabinets. We literally can’t live without them. So why are they disappearing?

Edit Image Alt Text: Alt Text
Edit Text: Water is life. It’s vital. It supports the immense diversity of life on Earth. It’s a source of food, health and energy. Fresh water makes civilization possible.​ But fresh water, in turn, isn’t possible without a healthy planet — and human actions are putting a healthy planet at risk.

Edit Text: Nature provides vital, unmatchable and ongoing returns to all of humanity. An investment in our planet is an investment in our future. We can’t protect our lands, waters and other natural resources without long-term financial commitments.

Edit Text: Men and women use natural resources in different ways and therefore have different needs, priorities and interests when it comes to conservation. Demonstrating how men and women can work as partners in conservation is critical for success.

Edit Text: The ocean makes life on Earth possible. It nourishes our bodies and our souls. It influences our weather, fuels economies and connects distant lands. It is vast, deep, powerful and mysterious. And it’s in trouble.
